It's Still About Books...

Finished this...what a shocker...a vintage sort of creepy thriller...wow...

Finished this...fast paced, loaded with family drama, bad people and an island...really read this into the night...so good!

Starting this...and it's described as a novel of suspense featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes...I love anything Sherlock Holmes...have you watched the latest BBC Sherlock? If not...it's good...very good...Season 1 and Season 2 and I think there will be a Season 3.

This is BBC's Sherlock...both seasons are so good...

Today is a pretty ordinary day...I am dealing with a returning Den who lost his new iPhone, a total absence of food in the house and a mountain of laundry!

I need to find something to make for dinner that can be popped out and eaten at any time and stuff for interesting lunches for the week!

I am kind of not in the mood to make a Whole Foods run...so I am planning on the produce place and the great little grocery store...very local...next door to help me out.

The Produce Place makes these great vegetable cups...loaded with carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, peppers, cucumbers, pea pods, celery...crisp and fresh...and you can buy little cups of their house made hummus for dipping. I get them for lunch whenever I go there.

Have an awesome day!


  1. Oh man, I've got to get to Heartbroken! It sounds great!

  2. Tigers in Red Weather sounds fascinating! Garment of Shadows sounds intriguing.

    Good luck shopping and I hope Den finds his phone! We are trying a cold cucumber soup that I heard about- itis served cold and might be just right for this humidity. Those veggie cups sound awesome!

    Have a wonderful day!

  3. Shopping is done...lunches planned and dinners, too...cucumber soup sounds very cooling...I am making a salad that Den can eat at any time!!!

  4. That is my favourite kind of lunch. When I'm not eating leftovers that is! When I started venturing into veganism, it wasn't much of a leap because, I'd have veg and dip for lunch, an apple and nuts for breakfast...there was just dinner to transform. Easy. Mind you I'm only a half assed vegnan but thats ok:)

    I like the sound of Heartbroken..my kind of book.

  5. I am a huge mystery/suspense fan, so am definitely planning on checking a few of these books out. I just finished a great thriller, "The In-Ko-Pah Spirit" by Wally Runnels, which is about a mercenary who is paid to track down a rebellious member of a Mexicali drug cartel. The search leads to the In-Ko-Pah Mountains, an isolated region on the Mexican/American Border. Thought I would share. Thanks again for the great book recommendations, I can't wait to start reading them.

    1. Hmmm...not sure that is a book for me...but thank you anyway!

  6. I really loved Heartbroken...in fact, all of Unger's books are must-reads for me.

    Love the cover of Tigers in Red Weather....I've been seeing it everywhere!

    1. Tigers was different and very good...I think you would love it

  7. Sherlock is airing here, too but I have never paid attention to it. I think I have to try :)
